The Epidemiology Elective Program (EEP) is an elective rotation for medical and veterinary students from different schools and diverse backgrounds. EEP introduces students to applied epidemiology, public health, and global health through hands-on experience and mentorship by CDC subject matter experts. This program offers 6- or 8-week rotations based at CDC sites, other federal sites, and state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments.
EEP partners with the CDC Foundation to provide several monetary awards annually for EEP graduates to attend the annual Epidemic Intelligence Service conference. Visit the awards page to learn more about the awardees and criteria for the CDC-Hubert Global Health Award and the Pappaioanou Veterinary Public Health and Applied Epidemiology Award.
